Since I didn't jump right into Gypsy Queen by pre-ordering, I was able to read several posts and even some reviews about the set before I leaped. Four hits per hobby box seemed intriguing, but I've grown wary of hits considering that my Heritage hits were pretty bland. So instead of hits, I just like nice cards with some interesting inserts of SP's - and here is the blue framed paper insert (parallel?) and this Rivera is a nice card to look at and a great name to own! And the Johnny Bench photo variation SP was another notable card in the final eight packs of my Hobby Box that I opened. But more was on the way...
My three favorite mini's for the eight pack series include this black border, and two great names.
But then I found something I had not ever seen before, and also something that now ONLY I OWN! (That's right, my first ever 1/1!!!)
I know Stephen Drew is not exactly a great name, but I was simply thrilled to pull this printing plate! Here is the back, if you haven't seen one:
I really have no idea what I am going to do with this. I did spend a bunch of money - probably more than I wanted to - on these two hobby boxes, so I may look to get a little back on ebay. I might have to ask you guys for advice on how to sell cards on ebay - just little tips and general suggestions - since I've never done it before.
But for the short while, I'm going to just enjoy owning a 1/1!
